This industry has evolved from a movement into a thriving market that is hungry for data to serve its shareholders and educate consumers. Only through the data analytics provided by New Frontier Data and our understanding of our community can we move this emerging market and pioneering platform forward,” Scott Kveton CEO MassRoots.
New Frontier Data’s data engine will enable MassRoots to aggregate, analyze and monetize the large volume of consumer engagement data being collected by the MassRoots mobile application and web portal. By combining MassRoots consumer data with New Frontier Data’s Big Data engine and market leading industry analytics, we will then be able to generate greater insights into the 3 million users in the MassRoots community and establish correlations between their interests and interactions across multiple channels.
